Examined the relationship between sponsored research monies and the graduation of undergraduate students at 22 public universities. Found that, in contrast to a basic premise of most policymakers and academic managers, an institution's sponsored research expenditures are positively related to undergraduates' graduation. Also found that mean SAT has a powerful impact on graduation, although at the individual level gender is a more powerful correlate. (EV)
